Affton community members—especially children—are finding creative ways to raise money for the , set up to help the family of the last week.
Residents have raised money through t-shirt sales, a lemonade stand and a car wash.
T-shirts are still for sale by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Shirts are $15 and the proceeds go to the memorial fund.
Four boys—including Max Roberts, Jared Robers and Devon Barshow—helped organize a lemonade stand that raised more than $1000 in three days. The boys set up on Cloverhurst Drive off of Mackenzie Road with the goal of raising $600 over three days. They ended up raising close to $1,400.
And students holding a car wash fundraiser in the Affton School District parking lot earned $760 Saturday.
If you hear about more fundraisers, let us know by sending an email to Lindsay.Toler@patch.com or posting to the Facebook page.
